I loved the mixing of Roman and Greek mythology. It takes Percy Jackson up a notch. There's more love stories going on and I liked the deep thoughts about the power of love and how Aphrodite was one of the first Greek gods born. If you haven't read the Percy Jackson series, this will definitely spoil the whole series for you but to me, it didn't seem like it was necessary for you to read the Percy Jackson series first if you don't want to. It was funny with some action and love and great characters thrown in. He does a great job of reinterpreting mythology into modern day terms that make it really fun to read.

“Jason scratched his head. "You named him Festus? You know that in Latin, ‘festus’ means ‘happy’? You want us to ride off to save the world on Happy the Dragon?”
